Safety, security affirmed at Ohio private prison



Published: Fri, December 7, 2012 @ 5:52 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The owner of a lakeshore lock-up in Ohio that last year became the nation’s first privately owned state prison says the facility been cleared for accreditation.

Nashville, Tenn.-based Corrections Corporation of America said today that Lake Erie Correctional Institution in Conneaut received a 99 percent score from the American Correctional Association after a 72-hour review this week. The association did not immediately return a message today to confirm the finding.

The owner-operator was rebuked by state prison officials after a September audit uncovered dozens of safety, health and security concerns nine months after Ohio handed over the keys.

The state helped the company correct concerns in hopes the prison would pass national inspection.

A company spokesman said it was notified verbally the prison had met safety and security standards.
